MLAs eye Improvement Trust funds to take credit for development works 5.1.2018 The Tribune
Our Correspondent Ludhiana, January 4 After prevailing upon the Punjab government to put off elections for the Ludhiana Municipal Corporation under the garb of delay in fresh delimitation of wards, which is still to be finalised, the Congress legislators in the city are now resorting to extracting funds from the Ludhiana Improvement Trust (LIT) for certain development works in their respective Assembly segments to show something in the name of performance to the people. The four Congress legislators from the city are in a piquant situation after the announcement of civic elections because the state government had stayed all the ongoing development works and frozen the flow of funds citing audit of works in progress or already completed. With the Municipal Corporation (MC) starved of funds and development of urban infrastructure in the city coming to a complete halt, the MLAs have nothing to show to the electorate when it comes to performance. In a desperate bid to wriggle out from a tight spot, the ...

Cabinet to take call on new policy to regularise colonies 27.12.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, December 26 Putting in place the revised basic infrastructure norm, the state Council of Ministers will tomorrow take a call on the new policy to regularise illegal colonies in the state. The agenda item was deferred in the last Cabinet meeting held on December 20 after Cabinet ministers - Navjot Singh Sidhu, Brahm Mohindra and Charanjit Channi – had raised the issue of laid down norms on roads, parks and other urban infrastructure. Sources say in the reworked norms it has been proposed that individual plots will be regularised only after the respective illegal colony is regularised. This will be in withdrawal from the earlier procedure during the SAD-BJP government that allowed individual plot owners to get their property regularised, irrespective of the legal status of the colony in which their plot was located. Apart from the penal clause, the issue of regularisation vis-à-vis the covered area has also been defined in the new regulation. A senior government functionary ...

The need for smart mobility in Indian cities 13.12.2017
Out of the 1.3 billion people in India, about 30 per cent of the population currently lives in cities, a number equal to the entire population of the US. It is estimated that by 2031, the urban population will rise to 60 million, while more metro cities in various regions of the country will emerge. In addition, the number of cities with populations of one million rose to 50 in 2011 according to the Census of India, from 35 in 2001; this number is expected to rise to 87 by 2031. Vinayak Bhavnani, CEO, Co-founder, Zophop believes that with rapid urbanisation in the country, and expanding city limits across urban areas, there is a growing need for smart transport systems. Urban infrastructure, especially public transport, significantly lags behind in meeting the requirements of commuters. A majority of the Indian population depends on public transport systems to commute to work daily, and problems such as growing traffic congestion, inadequate capacity of transport modes, and rising pollution levels only ...
